[Review] Innisfree Apple Seed Deep Cleansing Foam

Innisfree Apple Seed Deep Cleansing Foam Review:

An apple a day keeps the blemishes away! Did you know that the seeds of apples contain monounsaturated fatty acids which are immensely beneficial for the skin? It can stimulate collagen synthesis so that skin looks youthful, is rich in antioxidants, can rejuvenate the skin and is able to cleanse the skin from the inside to soothe acne!

I was suffering from a sudden bout of acne flareup but did not change my routine because I thought it was PMS. I received a travel sized bottle of the IF Apple Seed Foam and decided to use it during my 8 days in Taiwan and my skin started clearing up after the second night of using it. I was previously using The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser which, in retrospect, I was dumb enough to not have suspected was the culprit behind the redness. Urgh.

After I returned from Taiwan, I decided to purchase a bottle of the cleansing foam. Let’s check out how the product fared!

[Review] SNP The Sound of Your Heart Aebong Warming Eye Mask

SNP The Sound of Your Heart Aebong Warming Eye Mask Review:

I was walking through Korean beauty section of my local Watsons when I found this SNP –The Sound of Your Heart Aebong Warming Eye Mask. I was initially drawn by the cutesy packaging but “warming eye mask” also got me. I have to admit that I abuse my eyes A LOT lately which probably explains as to why it hurts and feels irritated more than ever. I know the power of a warm compress so buying this warming eye mask is not up for discussion. I NEED THIS ONE!

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ Review:

I’ve used up two tubes of the Missha Essence Sun when I ran out, only to find that they came out with more products within their sunscreen line. So being the curious cat that I am I bought the Missha Essence Sun Milk on a whim. I love the original Essence Sun so I know it’s going to be just as good if not more.

Missha recently changed the packaging of their old sunscreens and added more, so now there are a total of 5 different kinds of sunscreens for everybody out there. There is the Essence Sun SPF 45+ / PA+++, Aqua Sun Gel SPF 50+ / PA++++, Soft Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ / PA+++, Waterproof Sun Milk SPF 50+ / PA++++, and finally the star of this review: Essence Sun Milk.

[Review] Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel SPF50+ PA+++

Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

I have never really liked sunscreen before but since my dermatologist made it perfectly clear it’s a must, I embarked on my quest to find the perfect sunscreen. I have tried a few dozen Western ones and they were all either too greasy, or too white, or too patchy, or too cakey. So after all the good things I have heard and read about Korean sunscreens I decided to give them a shot. After a lot of research, one of the first I ordered was Skinfood Aloe Watery Sun Water Gel and I am very happy I did.

[Review] A’pieu Fresh Mate Tea Tree Sleeping Mask

A’pieu Fresh Mate Tea Tree Sleeping Mask Review:

Sister brand of the well known brand Missha, A’pieu formulates makeup and skincare targeting young women in their twenties. The amazing prices, promising claims and a flash sale compelled me to try a few products from this brand. This brand has a line of ‘fresh mate’ masks, the tea tree sleeping mask seemed perfect for my oily skin that blemishes when irritated. This mask contains hefty amounts of tea tree extract.Tea tree is an excellent antibacterial and antifungal ingredient that works amazingly for banishing acne and soothing skin. But does this sleeping mask work?

[Review] Leaders Aquaringer Skin Clinic Mask Sheet

Leaders Aquaringer Skin Clinic Mask Sheet Review:

I was just walking through the renovated super market here, close to my house, and saw a whole section of skincare! It has the supermarket’s brand products, of course, but since this is Korea they also put a few brands on “lesser” (aka cheaper) products such as masks and mists. I swear I wasn’t going to buy any mask, but then I saw a small Leaders group and decided to see what all the fuss on Instagram is about!

This Aquaringer mask appealed to me because of the design (which reminds me of another brand I use), the hydration effect of course, and the wrinkle improvement claim. So, I chose this one to “test” the brand!

Lindsay All in One Energizing Gold Modeling Mask Review:

I’ve been having long days lately and I am starting to feel like a zombie, yet again. I honestly need some serious pampering.  And as much as I would like to visit facial clinic/spa, I would rather spend my free time in bed (in pajamas) because it’s more comforting than a trip to spa. What?! Fully air-conditioned room, comforter and a nice read doesn’t sound as appealing to you?! Times like this, I would usually slap a sheet mask in between but I feel that I deserve much more pampering than what they tend to offer. So I decided to step up my masking game with Lindsay All in One Energizing Gold Modeling Mask. Apparently, Lindsay is a brand of modeling masks that are being used in Korean spa and now they come in packets so we can bring home the bacon! Err, I definitely meant spa!

[Review] The Saem 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Soothing Gel

The Saem 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Soothing Gel Review:

After spending hours online in search of a good aloe product, I settled on this one because of its alleged “99% aloe” ingredient as opposed to the more often 95% or even 92% aloe products I have seen on the market. I just wanted something that was as much aloe-based as I could get because my skin was irritated, dry, and sensitive at the time that I needed it.

SexyLook Disney Princess Black Mask Sheet Belle Review:

The beautiful illustration of Belle caught my eye when I bought the Etude Bubble House Sleeping Pack and I picked up one of the Disney x SexyLook masks to try. This is one of the masks from Sexy Look’s Disney princess line and it happened to be the most popular one according to the shop. Most were buying it because it was Belle and others because they wanted the benefits of using the mask. I’ve seen other masks by SexyLook but wanted to try this one as it promoted hydration and because it was Disney themed.
